Fantasy Baseball Streaming Pitchers & Waiver Wire Pickups (Week 13)

Fantasy Baseball Streaming Pitchers & Waiver Wire Pickups (Week 13)

Here are the pitching streamers for week 13. For this week we will dig deeper for the streamers. I stayed away from pitchers that were rostered close to 50% on average. We have just a couple of pitchers averaging over 30%. I didn’t care for many of the matchups this week, which is why I chose some deeper league names. So, for Week 13, we are going to need some luck. First, here are the results from June 3rd to June 9th:

Total Stats: 27.2 IP, 9 ER, 8 BBs, 21 Ks, 3-0 Record

This wasn’t a terrible week. Three wins is good and we had an ERA of just under 3.00. Alec Marsh and Ryan Weathers’ pitching days changed but the matchups were the same. Tylor Megill was pushed back to the next week, so I didn’t factor his stats in. Marsh was a tad disappointing since he was my prediction pick. I had predicted 6 IP, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 Ks and the win. We were close on everything but the earned runs.

STREAMING PITCHERS: WEEK 13

(Rostered percentage is based on the average of ESPN, Yahoo!, and CBS leagues.)

Monday, June 17th

Jose Soriano (LAA) vs. MIL | 32%

With only nine games on the slate, our choices are limited. Jose Soriano continues to be an intriguing choice for fantasy owners. In his last five starts, he has pitched six innings or more in each. He pitched a season-high eight innings in his last start and has won his last two starts. Teams are hitting just .220 versus Soriano this year.

Milwaukee sits around league average in hitting categories. A few positives for Soriano; Milwaukee has the second-highest groundball rate in the majors and is in the top 10 for most hitting strikeouts.

Other Option: Carlos Rodriguez (MIL) at LAA | 5%

Tuesday, June 18th

Spencer Schwellenbach (ATL) vs. DET | 21%

After struggling against the Boston Red Sox in his second major league start, Spencer Schwellenbach bounced back with a quality start against the Baltimore Orioles. He’s still looking for his first win and perhaps his last start showed he is getting more comfortable as a major league starter.

Detroit’s hitting is around league average. They don’t walk much, ranking in the bottom 10 for most walks. Detroit also ranks in the top 10 for most hitting strikeouts. Schwellenbach’s counterpart will be Casey Mize, so hopefully Atlanta can get some run support early and get Schwellenbach his first major league win.

Other Option: Tobias Myers (MIL) at LAA | 18%

Wednesday, June 19th

Alec Marsh (KC) at OAK | 34%

I’ve selected Alec Marsh a few times this year as a streamer with mixed results. For this one, it’s mainly because he’s going up against Oakland. Oakland has the second-most league strikeouts and the second-worst league batting average.

Until his last start against the Yankees, Marsh hadn’t pitched over six innings since May 21st. In his last start, though, he went 7 innings, allowing just one hit and struck out eight. Hopefully, he can bring the same stuff against Oakland he had against the Yankees.

Other Option: Andrew Heaney (TEX) vs. NYM | 18%

Logan Allen (CLE) vs. SEA | 31%

Just like Monday, there are only nine games on the slate this day. Fortunately, Seattle is playing and they bring their third-worst batting average. Also, let’s not forget the strikeouts, where they still have the most strikeouts of any team in the majors. Seattle has indeed struggled against righties more this year, so with Allen being a lefty, this matchup doesn’t carry more excitement.

In Allen’s last six starts, he has managed to pitch six innings in just three of them. His season stats are not great with a 5.30 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP. Somehow, though, he has a 7-3 record on the year. I feel a little uncomfortable with this matchup, but if you need a streamer, remember it’s Seattle and it’s a Thursday.

Other Option: Simeon Woods Richardson (MIN) vs. TB | 32%

Friday, June 21st

Joey Estes (OAK) vs. MIN | 17%

I don’t know how I feel about starting the weekend with an Oakland A’s pitcher but here we are. Minnesota wouldn’t be my choice but like a few other teams I picked against this week, Minnesota is around league average when it comes to hitting. They do rank in the bottom half of the league in hard-hit% but nothing else jumps off their Statcast page to exploit. Minnesota doesn’t take too many walks and Joey Estes has a good walk rate, so that’s good.

Estes has five pitches but uses his fastball mostly. Currently, teams are hitting just .183 against that fastball. He has only pitched six innings or more twice in his six starts this year. Thinking he should be good for five innings here. He does have a matchup against this same lineup this weekend. Hopefully, it’s a decent start and Estes carries some confidence into this Friday start.

Other Option: Colin Rea (MIL) at SD | 19%

Saturday, June 22nd

Miles Mikolas (STL) vs. SF | 33%

Miles Mikolas has done a good job lowering his season stat line over his last six starts. Over his last six starts, he hasn’t allowed more than three earned runs. Five of these starts have been quality starts. During those six games, teams are averaging just .181 against him.

I will sound like a broken record here but the Giants are a league-average hitting team. With the streak Mikolas is running, I would be willing to bet he can keep it going against the Giants.

Mikolas is my pick prediction this week: 6.1 IP, 2 ER, 2 BBs, 7 Ks, Win.

Other Option: JP Sears (OAK) vs. MIN | 30%

Sunday, June 23rd

Hogan Harris (OAK) vs. MIN | 3%

I started the week with an Oakland A’s pitcher, so I might as well end the week with one. After Harris made his season debut on May 7, where he gave up four earned, he hasn’t allowed more than two earned runs since. Teams are averaging just .211 against him. In his last three starts, he has averaged 92 pitches. It seems like Oakland is allowing him to go deeper into games.

Harris did have a string of good starts last year before falling off the cliff. So, we could be getting some good starts from the left-hander. As mentioned, the Twins’ average lineup doesn’t scare me and I could see Harris limiting the damage.

Other Option: Tobias Myers (MIL) at SD | 18%
